374pp, over 500g. Faults? repaired tear on dj, previous owner name. Reviewer says >>> Interesting biography of a largely forgotten explorer, war hero and educationalist, with occasional insights into the snobby British class system. Frederick Spencer Chapman, DSO & Bar, ED (10 May 1907 - 8 August 1971) was a British Army officer and World War II veteran, most famous for his exploits behind enemy lines in Japanese occupied Malaya. His medals include the following: the Polar Medal, Gill Memorial Medal, Mungo Park Medal, and the Lawrence of Arabia Memorial Medal. << His books include Northern Lights, 1932. Watkins' Last Expedition, 1934. Lhasa: The Holy City, 1938. Helvellyn to Himalaya, 1940. Memoirs of a Mountaineer, 1945 (combined reprint of the above two). The Jungle is Neutral, 1948 Living Dangerously, 1953. Lightest Africa, 1955. Chapman's extraordinary life is a tale that should be more well-known, perhaps as much as TE Lawrence's is known. [as an aside it's amazing that a biopic wasn't made using Kenneth More in the lead]
